Sam is still healing from surgery, going to OT and PT. He is getting stronger every day. Thank you so much for your prayers and generosity. See More

THE STORY:

It is with a heavy heart I am creating this fundraiser.  My brother Sam was diagnosed with cancer, oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma, two weeks before Christmas. They did the surgery on Sam on the 29th of December to remove the cancer, but during the surgery the doctor’s found that the cancer has already leaked. Sam spent one week in ICU and now must undergo two months of radiation and chemotherapy. As you can imagine, Sam’s medical bills and skyrocketing and they are in fear of having to make the choice between loosing the house, putting food on the table, and treating his cancer. Sam is the sole provider for his family. His wife is unable to work and one of their children is autistic and needs constant care. The job Sam currently holds is temp work, so they can terminate him without cause as soon as he can no longer perform. Since he has already missed a week of work, we fear this termination will come sooner rather than later, although Sam is a fighter and will work as long as he can through the radiation and chemo.

I know times are tough for everyone, but if you can spare, $10 or $15 we will be eternally grateful. Please help us beat cancer. I cannot imagine a world without Sam, the picture is of Sam walking me down the isle on my wedding day, he is far more than my brother, he is my mentor, my hero, my best friend, and I can attribute the majority of my life’s successes to him. I wouldn’t be a Chief in the Navy today if it wasn’t for Sam. Please pray for our family, we need a miracle. God Bless.
